Great Britain / United Kingdom fantasy euro sets

PRUEBA  TRIAL  PROBE  ESSAI (makers mark)   GREAT BRITAIN

These are massive! And from 2003 apparently. The 2 euro piece is 24.8g and 35.1mm.

And yes I didn't get the 20c.

These sets have been around for many years now. Wonder if they are also going to issue British €2 coin commemorating Brexit? >:D

Caution. The low-hanging fruits are still there maybe for a reason.

These fantasy sets exist for many European nations whether they were going to use the euro as their new monetary unit or not.  Just the other day I found a set from Monaco at a modest price that I had placed on eBay watch list only to find later that it was one of these fantasy sets.  I did not purchase the set.
